    Introduces friction for low-effort posting. Asks if they are sure and really want to post when:
    • Replying to old threads - global or per thread.
    • Low-word count posts - per thread.
    If the user accepts, this is recorded into the database but there is currently no UI this log.
    More counter measures will be introduced over time.

    Displays recent users who have posted despite the post friction warning, optional limit per page (default 30 per page)

    Works with the following Content Types
    • Threads
    Per thread options

    Under Thread Tools -> Post Friction;
    example.png
    (blank = do not apply)

    Under Thread Tools -> Post Friction; (listing users who posted anyway, with Post Rating support):
    example2.png

    Example output:
    too_short.png


    Known limitations
    1. Not tested without javascript enabled, which will block posting to threads that are too old or low word count.

    Installation

    I recommend using Add-on install & upgrade to install this add-on.

    Must have add-on. This is a great alternative to post count limit which in some situation could be a harsh measurement. A friendly way to warn members and effective! Awesome support from a great dev. Thanks Xon!

    Requested this from @Xon to help cut down on spammy chatter posts in threads where it is undesirable via a soft word-count limit (rather than than the built-in board-wide hard limit.) Does exactly what I expected it to.
